Shapiro Capital Management (SCM) is a value manager that adheres to an absolute value approach to investing in US equities. The firm manages small-cap, mid-cap and all-cap equity products. SCM employs a bottom-up investment selection process that is based on research-intensive fundamental analysis. The firm's value approach often includes a contrarian philosophy. They do not employ technical analysis in their investment decisions. SCM seeks to identify companies that compete in a business that is easily understood and that demonstrate superior economic characteristics. The firm typically invests in companies with high returns on invested assets, free cash flow, true franchise characteristics, significant barriers to competitive entry, products with minimal chance of obsolescence and significant managerial ownership. SCM's research includes an analysis of financial statements including all published material for at least the three most recent years. They focus on historical accounting procedures, asset valuations and cash flow. SCM will sell when a stock reaches what they believe to be its intrinsic value, when there is an unanticipated corporate reorganization, there is a change in business philosophy or when there is an unanticipated change in management.
